Speaking of cologne, when I first started my current job, I visited the ladies' room one day just as a co-worker was spraying perfume all over herself. She was the kind of lady for whom one or two puffs wasn't enough - she had to empty half the bottle. I have allergies and was not happy, but I didn't say anything. She left, and another lady entered the bathroom - whereupon she stopped dead, glared at me, and said "Did YOU make that awful perfume-y stink?" I said "No - I don't wear perfume." Sneering, she said "What on earth do you mean, you 'don't wear perfume'? EVERYONE wears perfume!" I said honestly "Not me - I have allergies, plus my husband has no sense of smell, so I never bother." I still don't think she believed me, though.
